2. One is a 50 cent piece, the other is a negative 20 cent piece
I get them all the time, usually as gifts or when trick or treating.

5. Although one is NOT a nickel,
the other IS. A quarter and a nickel.

8. Well, I guess the "only one is a nickel" answerers
already got it right, but it got me thinking... I think there may have actually been a twenty-cent piece coined in the U.S. long, long ago. So, I'll cheat a little and go with: an ancient twenty-cent piece and a dime!

(Yeah, here it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twenty-cent_piece_%28Unite...
Apparently, they were only minted for four years!)

10. One is a penny
and the other is a 1972 dime with a Roosevelt imprint worth exactly ... 29 cents!
